I'll probably get flamed for this but anybody else mine YAC with your idle CPU's while mining WDC?  I figure my CPU's not doing much so what the hey.  I don't make much from it but it's a little something extra.

I honestly just throw my CPU's on a WDC P2Pool.  It's fun watching the coin come into your wallet every 15 minutes or so.

I was getting like 60Kh/s from my cpu and it was sucking about that much away from my GPU's not sure what it translates to in coin.

I got 55Kh/s from my CPU (AMD 8150 Eight-Core, 3.6GHz), the downside was that my 2 x 7970 lost total of 400Kh/s when CPU mining were enabled, so I stop such madness immediately and I'll stay in GPU only mining.

In Italy electricity is not at all cheap so I'm mining with only my 7970 because CPU sucks more money from electricity than they give to me by mining... I personally would mine with CPU only if, for some reason, I'll not pay electricity.

It could be of help to measure wattage of your PC with and without CPU mining to understand how much watt CPU mining take, then with a calc do some math and you can understand if it's convenient or not.

In Italy it's complicated. First KW/h of every month have a cost, subsequent ones costs a little more and subsequent ones cost even higher.

This, in theory, is to grand that people that use electricity only for light and essentials services stay cheap

This said I calculated the worst case where I'm using only the third span (the most expensive). In that case I'll pay 0,28€ / KW/h (if I remember correctly).

 

It would be nice to read about similar calculations in other countries...

I mine YAC with my CPU without issues (quad core, set to use 3 of them) as long as your not using ALL resources, all other tasks continue without being affected.

It indeed sounds complicated but make kind of sense. In Finland it's more straight forward, normal household electricity have flat rate consisting of subscriber fee, electricity fee, transfer fee and tax. In my case I pay fixed 7,4 €/month subscriber fee and 0,124€/ KW/h based on consumption, not cheap but nothing to compared your 0.28€ / KW/h, uh !

Very valid point ! I don't know why I thrown all cores into mining work, that really hurt overall performance. Today I tested WDC P2Pool mining with 5 CPU threads (out of 8) and it didn't had any impact to GPU performance. CPU mining gives steady 48khash/s, not bad BUT it consumes 110W extra

Yeah, there is the extra power drain, but who knows, It may pay off. I don't judge profitability on that kind of thing - the power used to mine bitcoins at the beginnig-ish made it not greatly profitable if you sold them straight away, but keeping them - wow :D

My mining computer is also my main computer, so I leave the CPU free for my usage.

 

Yacoin doesn't really seem to have much value and I doubt it ever will.  Being only CPU mineable seems great, but this means it's really prone to botnets and the network hashrate will be low.  Just asking for exploitation if you ask me.

I would rather leave the CPU free than mine YAC. It is quite tough to mine YAC now and the prices are quite shabby. I thought YAC had some future but all the coins released after that killed it.

 

With 60k you can actually try and mine some coins for fun. Like Doubloons, memecoins etc.

Stratum Proxy
http://mining.bitcoin.cz/media/download/mining_proxy.exe
CPU Miner: 
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=55038.0

You need the cpuminer and the stratum proxy.  First, configure the mining proxy to point to your pool.  It uses json files (open with notepad, configure and save)

Next, run the cpuminer and point it to the proxy.
